2003 td6 amplifier

I have a tremendous amount of static intermittently coming through the speakers, whether the radio is switched on or off. I am told its the amplifier in the luggage compartment in the back. Can it be repaired because i am struggling to find a second hand one.

2006 2.0l diesel. Why is there an intermittent beeping sound coming from passenger door speaker?


Could be bad speaker, bad wire pinched in door hinge, the radio could be bad, or there could be some RF interference the wire is picking up. Try switching speaker around.

How do I disconnect the amplifier on my 2005 Grand Prix; it makes continuous static noise whether the radio is on or off or whether the ignition is on or off?


Assuming it's the monsoon amplifier it's located under the rear deck about 8 inches away from the passenger rear speaker. However unplugging it will kill all the speakers. The only way to properly bypass it is to run all new wires.
You maybe able to find another factory amp at a salvage yard.  

Warning: Most of the Monsoon head units have a 6V offset, making it incompatible with aftermarket amps.

Static popping and buzzing sounds come from the speakers when the car is running. The Radio is not turned on and it will continue for a long time, quit then start again as you are driving.


Is it a factory amplified system? Could be the volume knob. Might try unplugging the radio for test purposes and see if it still pops and buzzes to get a better idea of where to go next

My 2003 ford focus radio is a blackpun it turns on but no sound come thru the speakers can someone help me


A Blaupunkt? Verify that the speakers are connected to the radio. This is simple if they are directly connected, but if they are connected through a power amplifier, then things get a little more complicated. If there is a power amp, then you might want to try connecting a speaker to the radio directly first, to help determine whether the problem is with radio, amp, wiring, or speakers.

MY FACTORY RADIO VOLUME PROBS


More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?

If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)

If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.

One more thing
Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.

Hope this helps.

Might be a failing semiconductor component (usually an old transistor) in the amplifier's front end. This caused by the oxidation through the component legs or pin. I usually touch and move each transistor's body to exaggerate the noise. You can research also what kind of noise is it producing- intermittent, static, etc.
hope this helps..

Sony Dream Machine clock radio


0) Read the last answer first :) it is the most likely.

1) Make sure that the noise is electronic, not mechanical,

a) Electronic noise comes from the speaker

b) Mechanical nose originates in the clock
(older mechanical clocks only)

c) Clocks come in 3 varieties:
Electronic
Mechanical "Flip Leaf"
Mechanical "Motor/ Gear" driven.

2) Assuming that your clock is electronic, there are
only two possibilities for causing static.

a) Extremely intense electromagnetic interference,
as in radio waves, from a thunderstorm or a powerful
transmitter nearby, such as a HAM radio or even
an active cell phone.

Intense electro-magnetic waves can be picked up by
internal wires within the radio which act as an antenna,
rectified (demodulated) by internal diodes and transistors,
filtered by internal capacitors and the speaker's inertia,
and still present enough audio frequency energy to the
sensitive speaker coil to be "quite" audible and irritating.

This can happen even with the power off, when the
interference is so strong that it needs no amplification !

This happens to my computer speakers, every time my
cell phone rings, and starts transmitting a return signal.


3) The power switch is intermittently shorting causing a small
amount of DC power to enter the radio, the more intermittent
the switch, the more noisy it gets.

This causes my old clock radio to turn on by itself when its
not supposed to.

The cause of the problem in either in the main power/ mode
switch, or in the clock driven switch or relay.

4) Old switches and volume controls get oxidized with time
and/or bridged by products of corrosion. The simple solution
is to clean them using a good aerosol contact cleaner,
available from an electronic shop for about 10 bucks.

Simply spray the cleaner into all the switches and controls,
while vigorously exercising each switch or control back and forth.

Make sure that you use a safe "electronic cleaner" designed
for the job. It must be safe on plastics, non-conductive, good
solvent and it must evaporate quickly. Don't breath the stuff !!!

Typically the spray will contain TF (tri-fluoro-ethane), or some
other freon substitute.

Freon (Di-fluoro-di-chloro methane) is bad for the ionosphere,
now illegal in most countries for that reason.

Also stay away from Carbon-Tetra-Chloride, which is
VERY toxic.

Do NOT improvise, or use acetone or alcohols, which may (will)
melt the plastic, causing the controls to permanently seize.

Get electronic contact cleaner from an electronics hobby shop.

Good luck. Martin

The rear signal is generated and separated internally, if either the processing is not correct or the rear channel amplifier has a problem, you can get this type of behavior. Does the static happen more often at higher volumes or is it purely random? Does changing the volume make the static louder or is it always the same level?
